Course Description

American Realism in the Late Nineteenth Century 

A largely self-taught painter working in oils and watercolors, Winslow Homer personified American life in the second half of the nineteenth century. From early periodical illustrations to depictions of the Reconstruction Era, to scenes of nature, Homer expertly captured the mood and essence of his subjects. In this course, consider paintings, watercolors, and prints produced throughout Homer’s career, comparing and contrasting his work with that of his contemporaries, both American and European.
